Editorial Reviews

Review

“There is music in [Myers'] best prints: subtle, lovely, and nuanced.”—Michael More, Camera Arts

“Joan Myers' enchanting pictures offer up wonderful insights into the mysterious otherness of the frozen south.”—Sarah Wheeler, author of Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica and Cherry: A Life of Apsley Cherry-Garrard

From the Publisher

Wondrous Cold: An Antarctic Journey is the companion book to a new museum exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). After premiering at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., in May 2006, the exhibition will be shown in 15 American cities through 2010.

As a book and exhibition, Wondrous Cold takes its place among the panoply of varied and engaging topics that SITES presents. We are deeply grateful to Quark Expeditions, our generous sponsor, for sharing our vision of reaching Americans wherever they live, work, and play.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although this is a "coffee table" style book, and the pictures are excellent, its stated goal was to review the interaction of humans with Antarctica, and it does this exceedingly well. Ms. Myers insights and her expressions of the feelings of being on this beautiful continent are excellent. Study the photos well, but read the text thoroughly. By all means, get this book if you have any interest in Antarctica.

I purchased this book shortly before going to Antarctica and the breathtaking pictures and the very engaging narratives about the continent and the people who work and live in such a place was great preparation for such a journey.

As soon as I received this book, I felt a chill...this book really conveys what I would expect the antarctic to be...every page has photos and takes you on a wondrous journey throughout the antarctic. My son is planning to take me there on my "big" birthday when I turn 70 years old...And I just can't wait to see in person the beauty and wonder that this book portrays of this icy area of the world. Olimpianbooks, the seller, kept their word and sent me a flawless book.
